Grants and Contracts

Missouri State University is awarded grants and contracts from federal and state agencies as well as private entities such as corporations and foundations. Grant and Contract Accounting is responsible for ensuring that funds received from these external sponsors are spent in compliance with funding agency regulations as well as University policies. Grants and Contracts Accounting is the University's official preparer of financial reports for externally funded sponsored research and programs. The Office of Research Administration reports to the Office of Research and Economic Development and handles pre-award functions such as submission of grant proposals; Grant and Contract Accounting reports to Financial Services and handles post-award functions such as periodic and final financial reporting, billing, indirect cost rate negotiation and calculation.
